Nashville residents should keep their umbrellas close as the city braces for a series of showers and thunderstorms, with the National Weather Service forecasting high chances of precipitation over the coming days. The NWS Nashville reports an 80% chance of showers and thunderstorms today before a slight reprieve tonight, where the chance drops to 40%.

The outlook isn't much sunnier for Friday, with a 70% chance of rain, which could bring between a quarter and half an inch of additional rainfall. As the weekend approaches, thunderstorms remain on the menu with a consistent 50% likelihood on both Saturday and Saturday night. For those planning outdoor activities, it may be prudent to consider indoor alternatives.

The soggy conditions are forecasted to continue into Sunday with a 60% chance of thunderstorms, potentially impacting those looking forward to Memorial Day events. However, the weather might ease off a bit on the holiday itself, with "a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms," according to NWS observations.

Looking ahead to next week, Nashville may finally see a break from the clouds with sunny conditions returning by Wednesday. But before then, early week forecasts suggest that a chance of showers extends through to Monday night, though only a slight chance persists by Tuesday. The early week will also provide some relief from the heat as the high settles near a comfortable 79 degrees.
